Oh boy - It's September already!

I am loving that it's September.  And while I know that most of the people who read my blog live in America, where you are all starting back at school, if you haven't already - here in New Zealand, September means SPRING!!!
Blossoms, and lambs, and flowers, and warmer weather, and the start of shorts weather (well I'll leave that for another month yet I think!).  I love it!

So the start of another month means it's time to head over to Oh' Boy 4th Grade with Farley for her Currently linky!  I love this, only three more Currently's before Summer!!!

My mama is the best in the whole world!! For my birthday this year she got tickets for us to go to Wicked at the end of this month.  The show is coming to Auckland, and is one of my favourites.  I saw it in San Francisco a few years ago, and have been hooked ever since!  I will just have to remember not to sing along!! haha

Yeah I know that you lot in the Northern hemisphere are gonna hate me, but we are starting to get warmer weather and so I AM LOVING Spring :)

Absolutely nothing! I'm so tired this afternoon.  I should have gone to kick boxing, but I'm really REALLY poor today after moving house.  Pay day is this week so it's okay.  My brain has switched off, and I might go to bed REALLY early tonight and get up and go for a walk tomorrow.

I love y'all in the wider world, really I do.  But there is nothing like finding someone who understands EXACTLY what you are talking about when you say something.  So if you know of any NZ bloggers, send me there way PLEASE!! I only know of one other at the moment.

Oh gosh I need the days to be longer!  I have sooooo much to do.  My to-do list is 6 pages long!  Some of those things I have already ticked off, but I just need more time!

OK so my three things are kinda all linked together.  In about 2 months (3rd Nov) I'm all booked in to do a 1/4 marathon.  While I can already run/walk (more walk than run), I would like to feel ok after the fact.  I'm a bit of a sleep for 5 more minutes and grab a sugary/milky drink for breakfast kinda gal.  I want to find something I am excited to get up earlier for and eat it.  Then get my butt out that door walking.  And I know that 7 days sugarfree isn't actually long enough to do a full detox, but I want to start with an attainable goal, rather than setting 30, getting to hour 4 and quitting!  If anyone has done a sugar free detox and can give me some pointers I'd be all ears!!

Well there ya have it!  'til next time!

  1. So happy to have found your blog & love your Currently. :) If you find a good breakfast, let me know.. I'm so "out the door/quick breakfast", and need something healthy and good. Best of luck with your run! :)

    First Grade Fairytales

    1. I will be sure to let you know!! Today I stopped long enough to have peanut butter on toast!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Love your goals! I have been sugar-free since August 6! The longest I have ever gone is 3 months. For me, the cravings went away within a few days... But, I also do not eat gluten, dairy, nuts, soy, or seafood. Some because of allergies, some because it leads me to want sugar and other junk. You see, I have celiac, so I cannot eat gluten. I would tell myself that I could eat Starbursts because they are gluten free. Well, I would eat the entire bag. Staying away from sugar helps me stay on track! The cravings really do go away. I never used to believe that. But, it's true. If I want a little something sweet, I will usually have tea, coconut milk with fruit, or a gummy vitamin! LOL! Hey, whatever works, right?!

    Good luck in your journey! You can do it! It really is worth it. Just make it til day 3 and you are there. It's so much easier after that!!!

    1. Thanks so much for the advice!! I will have to stock up on some yummy teas!!


  3. Only three more Currently's until summer? That means only three more until I'm in AUSTRALIA!! We bought our tickets and are trying to figure out the transportation between Sydney, Melbourne, and Cairns. I know, I know. You say that NZ is the best, but I want to start on the big island first! I can always come back, right?
    As for breakfast, I found these incredibly tasty Greek yogurt cakes with only 100 calories each. My Costco sells them. Not sure if they'll have them in NZ, though.

    1. Yeah I don't think we have anything like that here, although we do have greek yogurt so maybe I should just make some of my own!!
      Take a look at this picture. http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS78fz4e-EKuDN5pw7ZddBrbgoTtZPBLq2ngmAiL5zA1zeE8Qe6RA:chasingcait.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/NZ-west-island.jpg And I will let you off :P. Australia is just the west Island of New Zealand.


  4. Hi Erin:
    I found you through Farley's Currently! So funny that you are looking forward to spring (boggles my mind!). I am waiting for FALL because it has been too hot these past few weeks. For us, the weather waits until the week before school starts to get really hot. Then the sixth graders are usually melting before lunch time!
    Great goals you set for yourself... I am envious of your ambition. Good luck with your quarter marathon!

    Finding JOY in 6th Grade

    1. Oh believe me it's exactly the same for us!! December is normally pretty terrible weather, and it starts getting good about 3 days before we go back to school. February is the HOTTEST month in New Zealand, and we start back in the first week of February. Must be a whole world kind of thing!!
      Thanks for stopping by!!
